Booking With Me During Covid-19

It’s taken me a while to write this post, simply because the strangeness and restrictions of the Covid-19 crisis have taken a long time to settle in me and my household.

As a woman, wife, mother and friend I am feeling disconnected and uncertain, not to mention a little bit afraid of what might be on the horizon.

As a Celebrant I am determined to keep looking forwards and providing the space and inspiration you need to build on your ceremony dreams with hope and ease.

We are all desperate to be surrounded by family and friends again; to laugh and hug and kiss and console. I am surely not the only one predicting a rush of incredible outdoor parties, wild weddings and heartful gatherings from the moment the lockdown is lifted and I am sure many of these will be weddings, naming days and memorials for those we love and who perhaps we lost.

So let’s not put off making plans for those beautiful days! You might even find support, hope and comfort in laying the seeds that will take shape on a future date.



Here’s a few ways I can help you do just that…


Making the Most of Your Cancelled Date

Had your Weddings cancelled or postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis? Read my popular blog post on ways to make the most of your ‘would have been’ Wedding Day to keep your journey towards being married on track.

Taking Bookings for Autumn 2020 onward

I am currently taking bookings for Weddings, Handfastings, Namings and Memorials from August 2020 onward.

All bookings will, until further notice, be on a flexible date reservation basis. This means that your non-refundable booking fee (£100) will secure you my services and a proposed ceremony date. Should government/health and safety restrictions mean this date becomes unviable you will be required to change the date to a new one, subject to my availability. No extra charge will be incurred for this.

The remainder of the balance will not be taken until we are certain the chosen date is viable; the timeline for this will be discussed at time of booking and as an ongoing part of our communications to adjust to any developments as they arise.

Should you choose to cancel your ceremony, all monies paid at that point will be non-refundable, subject to the terms and conditions laid out in the booking form.

Inspiring and Uplifting

I am currently offering a live reading of a #PoemADay over on my Facebook Page to inspire and lift the spirits during these troubling times.


Listen. Breathe. Feel. Share.
